I love a good casual tee to create an effortlessly cool outfit. I am always drawn to unique pieces and fun outfits, but for the most part, I want to feel stylish while still being comfortable.

Casual tees create that look for me. I love to look effortless but still want to feel fabulous, stylish, and look like I kinda tried, because it's good to try a little!  I love pairing tees with my favorite denim, whether it be jean shorts or pants and a great pair of slides likes these Gucci ones here. Check out my fave tee shirts available now:

How cute are these t-shirts? And who says t -shirts aren't stylish? They totalllly are!  I love a little something extra and as you can see, I am in love with the color pink. I got mine from a thrift story in West Hollywood but added some that have a similar look to shop.

See you guys back here tomorrow!

Happy Friday beauties!

Today I am sharing my top 5 Reformation jeans that I WANT badly.

I am sitting in bed as we speak, drinking some much-needed espresso and preparing for my busy day all over LA.  I have a casting this am, then a blogger event, and then a birthday party at my house in Silverlake for my brother in law. Such a fun social day but a lot of driving and timing things out! 

Soooo, I love to share my newest obsessions with you guys in real time, and one of my favorite fashion obsessions right now are Reformation jeans (well, really all Reformation clothes). I have the hardest time finding jeans that fit me well, are high waisted and flattering, have a good denim feel (not too hard, a little stretch), and are tailored well. It's a tall order, but #Refjeans makes it happen.

I now have two pairs of their jeans with my eyes on about 7 other pairs because I love them that much. I rounded up my TOP 5 for you girls to make it easy and to the point to see what I am loving MOST. 

Let me know if you're OBSESSED with Reformation too! They are THE best!

That's a huge deal because they carry so many brands, many of them being mid to high end designers with pricey items that would be way more palateable with such a huge discount.

Coachella Outfit Inspo- Festival Season Faves I Love

dazzle.png

Today I am sharing some major Coachella outfit inspo!

So I have a confession. I have never been to Coachella. To be honest, I haven't been all that interested in years passed because it gets hottttt in Coachella Valley and I don't follow bands or musicians the way I once did. I haven't been tempted to be around that many people at once in the heat, getting dirty and sweaty when I would rather spend the money on clothes or food haha!

I will go one day (if I get VIP tickets lol), but one thing I do love about music festival season is the fashion and personal expression in all the outfits, accessories and jewelry choices! I LOVE some of the over the top looks, but I have to say, I am kinda over the teeny-bopper micro jean shorts and crop tops with flower crowns and feather headresses.

I am loving how so many great bloggers are elevating their looks and dressing more similar to their personal style with a flare.

I put together a mini roundup of pieces I am loving for Spring that I would go for if I wear heading out to a festival weekend. I would wear pieces that could be transitional, would we breathable for the heat, easy to wear all day, and also something that would make me feel fab style wise! Check out some pieces below that you can shop for whatever weekend plans you have coming up! And let me know which ones you love!

GIFT YOUR GUY A UNIQUE + MINIMALIST WATCH THIS VALENTINES DAY

unique-jord-wood-watch-valentines-day-gift.jpg
untitled-4.jpg

Alright, ladies, you know what time it is!

That's right, Valentine's Day is tomorrow. Yikes! I have a love/hate relationship with Valentines Day. I love it because I'm a romantic and love any opportunity to celebrate and go to dinner, lets be honest. Food makes this girl happy!

The "hate" part comes from the fact that I'm terrible at buying Chay gifts because he isn't really into "stuff". He is surprisingly hard to give gifts to because he doesn't like or need a whole lot. He's a minimalist and prefers to dress that way, you know, he keeps it simple.  A little background on Chay: He's a super athlete (ahem, he's an Olympian!), down to earth, very entrepreneurial, and just an all-around good guy. He is not trendy (which I love!) and could not care less about flashy designers and labels that he feels are gaudy (I think some are just fine haha! I wouldn't mind some labels here and there lol!). You get the idea. He's a dude, so the more minimal for him, the better.

Every year, as Valentine Day approaches, I feel this pressure to get him an awesome gift to show him how much I appreciate him, but don't know where to start because of all the reasons I mentioned above. Well, this year I planned ahead!

unique-minimalist-wood-watch-for-valentines-day.jpg

I got Chay a really cool wood watch because the aesthetic is very me and verrrry Chay! If you follow along on Instagram (here!), you know I love a boho-luxe look. Meaning, bohemian and down to earth, but with a chic and more minimal vibe. These types of watches are unique, well made, and understated. I love that. They are also a more affordable option when it comes to investment (time) pieces (see what I did there?)! Here is what I LOVE about the designs of the watch I got for Chay and the company, "Jord":

1. The aesthetic is classy, not flashy

2. Chay will want to wear this watch because it's super unique, made of natural materials, and feels very quality without being bulky or overly trendy.

3. It's not typical. I don't know anyone else with this specific watch. It feels like such a special gift and they even engrave if you want, to make it more special.

I wanted to give it to Chay in a fun environment so that it would feel extra special, so I waited till we got to our loft in Downtown LA, a place we both love to be. For those of you who don't know, we live primarily in Redondo Beach and have an investment place in DTLA and Palm Springs (thus pictures on my gram from all of those places). DTLA is the perfect weekend spot for us and we both love to be there! It feels so special, so I knew it would feel extra special giving him this watch on the rooftop at our loft to really amp up the ambiance. Plus, this year has been a trying one for us since moving from Echo Park, an area we loved, to a more quiet area that works for Chay's commute but is a little isolating for me. I really wanted to show Chay that I loved him with his gift and trust him because he is always so concerned about my happiness, but I want him to feel that love too!

I decided to give it to him early because I couldn't wait any longer. (plus I really wanted to get this post up for you guys to have all the info!) He loves it! He wears it all the time and says he loves it most because he can wear it to casual business meetings or fancy dinners with clients and it transitions well without ever looking flashy or too casual. See!? Minimal works! I LOVE THAT! It is so HIM and I felt like I finally got him something he loves! He is always working so hard and wants to spoil me because he is such a selfless guy, but I find it hard to do the same for him because he is sooo easy going. I love that this year he felt spoiled and feels put together and sharp when he wears it!

Do you guys know what you're going to do for your man on Valentines Day, or are you running around frantic last minute? I love this watch and think it would make a special gift for your honey, plus you'll love it too! (Isn't it the worst when they wear stuff that's just.not.cute?) And since the big day falls on Wednesday, maybe wait till Saturday to celebrate and buy yourself some time! This would be a great gift regardless of the occasion. Check out the watches below and let me know what you think!! I hope you guys have the best day with or without a significant other. No man? No problem, treat yo self-ladies!

London Roundup- 5 Gorgeous + Hip "BOUTIQUE" Hotels (that are so instagrammable)

Chiltern Firehouse

Marylebone- Brick townhomes and apartments that used to be mansions. I mean, how amazing would it be to live in one of these gorgeous homes?

Marylebone- Brick townhomes and apartments that used to be mansions. I mean, how amazing would it be to live in one of these gorgeous homes?

A little about Marylebone 

Okay, so we were in London a couple weeks ago and happened to get really  lucky when booking our hotel! Its hard to know which hotels to stay in because sometimes places look different in person, and the vibe is always hard to tell until you're there. We loved staying  in the calm but very hip Marylebone area (near Mayfair) where the restaurant and shopping scenes are very quaint and charming but still super cool with curated shops anyone would love. We felt tucked away, yet were still blocks from the craze of Oxford St. with mass market shops and tourists.  It feels like what you would imagine a cozy London town to feel like with the Holiday decor up on every street post, twinkly bistro lights in every restaurant window, and EVERY SINGLE doorway and "apartment" (or townhouse mansion?) building bordered in ornate moldings and brick. It's GORGEOUS! 

I rounded up hotels that I would want to stay at the next time I'm in town based on the most important criteria, at least to me...aesthetics. I am in love with interiors, as most of you know if you follow me on insta, so of course kept my eyes and ears peeled for some gorgeous and hip hotels you would definitly want to visit.

5 Gorgeous (and Hip Hotels) in london -

Here are 5 Hotels that are SO GORGEOUS with great vibes and an awesomely hip and beautiful interior (and of course great for the gram).

1. Chiltern Firehouse (Marylebone)- We will for sure stay here next time we come! This hotel is equal parts cool, vibey, aesthetically pleasing from floor to ceiling, and with a great bar and restaurant! We came for dinner one night and LOVED everything. The interiors are full of cool textiles, furniture, gorgeous marble and very hip people, just sayin'. This hotel is the first outpost for hip Hotelier Jose Balazs ( of Chateau Marmont among others). GO.

2. The Marylebone (Marylebone)- This hotel is great for a boutique hotel, tucked away down a quiet but quaint and beautiful side street. The interior from the bar area, lobby (with tons of seating to do work in a beautiful and chic setting), hotel restaurant (108 Brasserie), and Gym and Spa area are amazing. There is marble, crown molding, wood paneling, and gorgeous overstuffed velvet furniture throughout the hotel making it super aesthetically pleasing! One note to mention would be to request a new room as it is newly remodeled, but only half the rooms got the update. The location of this hotel is ideal, smack in the middle of high street, a great shopping area. 

3. Ham Yard Hotel (Soho)- The location of this hip and gorgeously designed hotel is in the middle of Soho, putting you close to everything that you would want to see in London. Everything in central London is convenient to the rest of the city, but this puts you even closer to attractions. The hotels design by Kit Kemp is AHHHMAZING. Everything she touches turns to cool + this hotel has a bowling alley and gorgeous bar. Very fun.

4. Zetter Townhouse- The location of this gorgeous boutique hotel is in Marlyebone, the area we just stayed in and LOVED! The hotel is warm and charming with a fun eclectic feel and a really great interior. I love the bar area, called "Seymours Parlour" at the Marlyebone location (there are two!). So even if youre not staying here, have a drink with a friend to check it out for yourself!

 

5. London Edition- This hotel is just COOL. Super modern, chic, and polished, I loved how the hotel has such character but yet feels modernized. It feels different from just an old school London hotel. It is just beautiful and has a Michelin starred chef in their restaurant as well, so foodies would love this place! You can't go wrong here as its centrally located in Fitzrovia on the edge of Soho. Definiltely worth a visit regardless.

London Look- Plaid x Plaid and the pieces I wore to DEATH in London

When in London, dress as the Londoners do, right?

 I'm not saying that every Londoner dresses like this, but I did notice when I was there the last couple times that people are just more buttoned up and chic. I LOVE IT! LA vibes are more relaxed and casual which is great for getting outta the house,  but its nice to change it up and put a bit more effort in my daily look.

I love plaids for winter and feel they just add a bit more style to an outfit. This plaid hat is super affordable and soooo chic, I am obsessed. I could have 20 of these fisherman style hats. This Zara blazer is my ABSOLUTE favorite. Its long, tailored, warm as a layering piece, but cool enough to wear with a tee. I paired them with these Dolce Vita slate grey suede booties that I wore allll around London and they were so comfy. Such a score! 

These items are all favorites right now and I wear them to death, in LA or London. Do you guys love plaid as much as I do for winter? Let me know in the comments below!

Chay (my husband, for those of you new to KR!) and I are loving our time in London town! We are finally getting to spend some uninterrupted quality time together and it has been amazing. London is one of those special places to me that feels so romantic and charming yet still so fast paced and current making it an ideal destination for those wanting a city vibe that feels so different from home in the states.

I love that everything here has so much character. The buildings are gorgeous and ornate, the grass is lush and the parks are serene. I truly could live here!

It was much colder than I realized it would be, which was a welcomed change from LA's 75 degree winters. I knew I'd be able to wear cute knit sweaters and my new Stuart Wietzman "Tielands", but wasn't really aware of just how cold it would feel... Luckily I brought a coat that was pretty warm (albeit mostly for "show" at home, definitely not cold enough to wear regularly but hey, that's fashion right?) and my boots that are AMAZING on and warm. 

These boots were a gift from Chay and I had put them on my wishlist a couple years ago, knowing these were totally a splurge item I would never buy "willy nilly" for myself. I was so excited to get them and have them for this trip, especially because they are comfortable and very warm over  skinnies.

I got the "Tielands" vs. the "Thighlands"," Highlands", "Lowlands", etc. because I wanted a little lift and to feel more sexy than how I'd feel in flat boots (although the lowlands are also on my list!). It took a while to find the right fit and style, because with Stuart Weitzman, it's a bit hard to tell the difference online between the different types of over the knee boots if you are new to the search. 

I am such a fan of these as an investment piece, but if these are just out of the question at the moment (which they were for me too for years!), I compiled a couple options here and here that are chic, with a great shape, and great price.

Do you guys love Stuart Weitzmans too? Let me know in the comments below!

Kim
